  • Thanks for joining me, Sky Chomse, for what has been a great advert for the African game. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  • It's all over!!! Nigeria have eliminated the favourites and advance to the semi-finals where Mali lie in wait.

  • Free-kick for the Elephants in what is surely their last chance of the match, but the defence is resolute.

  • Just two minutes of added time remain for Nigeria to hold on to their lead and for Ivory Coast to salvage their tournament hopes.

  • Vincent Enyeama receives a yellow card for time wasting.

  • Joseph Yobo comes on for Victor Moses to shore up the defence for Nigeria.N

  • Fantastic challenge by Efe Ambrose to deny Yaya Toure a certain goal, with the midfielder clean through.

  • The Nigerians will look to run the clock down and will certainly not be committing to many players forward as they try to defend their one goal advantage.

  • Substitution for Ivory Coast as Romaric is replaced by striker Lacina Traore.

  • Ivory Coast have it all to do with just seven minutes left of regular time.

  • Brilliant goal from Mba who took the ball all of 60 yards before beating two defenders and firing over the helpless Barry, albeit via a wicked deflection off Souleymane Bamba.

  • Goal!!!!! Ivory Coast 1-2 Nigeria!!! Sunday Mba gives the Super Eagles the lead!!!

  • A quarter of an hour left in this match with the prospect of extra-time fast becoming a reality, as the teams remain level at 1-1.

  • Moses is at the heart of everything good Nigeria are doing as his delicate flick releases Echiejile, only for the defender's effort to take a huge deflection and go out for a corner.

  • Salomon Kalou comes off for Max Gradel.

  • Great save from Vincent Enyeama to deny Yaya Toure a certain goal.

  • Scramble in the Ivory Coast goalmouth eventually results in Barry gratefully getting his hands on the loose ball.

  • Moses does well to create some space down the right, but then sends his cross out for a throw-in on the far side.

  • Eboue has picked up a knock and looks to be in a fair amount of pain as the stretcher is brought onto the field, but the defender hobbles off unassisted to receive further treatment.

  • The Elephants seem to be attacking at will, with Nigeria's defence struggling and having to make some last ditch challenges to keep themselves in the game
